- PMUP v2 Practical Multi-Purpose Utility Pump - Neptune Systems
The PMUP v2 is a multi-purpose pump that can be used for many different tasks on your aquarium. The redesigned PMUP now includes valuable features over the previous version, allowing it to be maintained with the removable screen but the PMUP will also now automatically shut off when it detects that it is running dry, but also over temperature protection.
- Auto Top Off
- Carbon Reactors
- GFO Reactors
- BioPellet Reactors
- Ideal for Salt or Freshwater
ATO will likely be the most popular use for this pump. And unlike many wimpy pumps out there, the PMUP has enough pressure to push water up 14 feet vertically, it can even move the water up from one floor below.
This means you could put your RO water storage in your basement or downstairs in a utility room and it could still pump it up to the tank.
It also has a vertically oriented design with a bottom intake and top output that is perfect for use in jugs or other RO containers. Just drop it in!
Run your reactors safely and with less energy
The PMUP is not just for ATO. It is also a great pump to use for running your various reactors bio-pellets, carbon, GFO, or even the two-stage combo unit from BRS you see here. The PMUP uses less than 20W of power so it is a very efficient way to run reactors and adds very little heat to your aquarium. We’re certain there will be many other uses found for the PMUP we’ve not even considered yet.
Removable Screen makes for easy cleaning and maintenance
Many inexpensive ATO pumps are not designed to be maintained. It’s almost as if they were meant to be disposable. But the PMUP has an easy to remove screen that keeps out foreign objects and also makes it easy to clean and maintain the pump
Easy to connect with standard tubing and fittings
The PMUP Has a smooth, 3/8″ (9.5mm) output that will easily connect to silicon tubing or standard push-fit connectors.

Failed Just before the 1 Year Mark By Matt on 6/30/2020Matt wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI have the V2 pump fail just before the 1 year mark. I used this pump as a utility Pump that runs about 1-2X per week for under 2 minutes each. I have another in use for my ATO. Now paranoid that it will fail at the most inopportune time.
Reliability Issues By Scott on 5/30/2020Scott wouldn't recommend this product to a friendPut PMUP V2 into service on 5/4/20 and today 5/30/20 the PMUP quit functioning. Not very reliable for a ATO Pump. Hopefully the replacement pump lasts awhile longer. Really like APEX products but this is not acceptable.
Easier to clean and still a workhorse By telegraham on 11/25/2019telegraham would recommend this product to a friendThis thing can push some water. Over 10ft with a 6ft vertical is no problem. V1 survivability was iffy, but I run it 24/7.
Not so good By FRANK on 9/15/2019FRANK wouldn't recommend this product to a friendUpdate Neptune sent me another pump to replace the loud one. Replacement pump is just as loud. At least I have 2 of them now so I can sell them to LFS and get my money back
Loud By FRANK on 8/31/2019FRANK wouldn't recommend this product to a friendIf your looking for a quite pump don't buy this I was amazed how much noise this tiny pump puts out. It is powerful for its size and puts out no stray voltage yet. I can't believe Neptune released this pump to the public now I'm out 40 bucks.
